Description

Description
Excellent teaching - we received the government's highest grade in a recent assessment - the only one in Wales.
International leading research in experimental and theoretical physics, with 90% of our research classes as excellent or internationally-leading. Together with our "Excellent" Teaching award, this makes us the highest rated Physics Department in Wales.
Students gain unique insights into cutting edge areas of research, including superconductivity, nanotechnology, superstring theory and antimatter.
A flexible modular course structure, allowing for transfers between different schemes up until the start of the 3rd year, with the final year of our MPhys programmes involving specialised courses and a full semester working on a cutting edge research project, including the possibility of carrying this out at CERN.
Research projects in areas including cold matter, lasers and optics, antimatter, nanoscale technology, all with expert supervision.
A wide range of entrance scholarships and bursaries available.
Very friendly and caring Department in a traditional University.
All successful applicants who make Swansea their first choice are guaranteed University Accommodation for their first year.
The compact and friendly campus offers a superb seafront location close to the magnificent Gower Peninsula.
